There are laws regarding the length of the blade and if the blade is fixed/ lockable or not.

I was just curious to know whether they were more heavily regulated than fire arms or not.

No, but they don't have one of the biggest propaganda machineslobbies to prop it up either.

Lawn darts are illegal.

Lawn darts.

I'm all for some increased gun control. But I don't think that would have prevented the two tragedies we've highlighted in this thread. It doesn't appear the weapon that was used to murder Chris Lane was an assault rifle - and the elderly veteran was beaten to death with flashlights.

Why? is that a myth about the black male?

For good reason from what I've heard


I thought switchblades were nation-wide illegal. As far as I know, they are definitely illegal in Indiana.

It took me a while to figure out why diemen found it disturbing. I read it as support for the death penalty, which isn't exactly unheard of. But then I realized in the car (why was I thinking about interference in the car?) that the image of a black person being hanged probably has a little more baggage tied to it than any other form of capital punishment. I'm not sure that's the way tim intended it, however

I remember my parents warning me to stay away from lawn darts when I was a kid. I still remember some slightly older kids playing with them in the park. What a terrible idea for a leisure activity

There's plenty of outrage on this subject, and it's a nations embarrassment. Race is a component of this, but the real issue is, as always, the ease of accessibility to handguns.

Also, there is specific criteria for something to be considered a hate crime. We'll see if this meets that criteria. From what I've read, a gang initiation seems a likely explanation.

Tourists don't fear our black people. They fear Americans with guns.

But rest assured, Australia -- the murder rate is at a 40-year low. It's safer to visit American now than in any of our lifetimes.

It's just unfortunate that the masturbatory gun fantasy results in crimes like this one that could only ever happen in America, not inly but primarily because of our gun laws.



You blame the guns?

Explain this:
Teen charged, second sought in beating death of WWII vet, 88, in Spokane, Wash. - U.S. News


And please explain why you ignore the following:

-The destruction of the famliy

-Children being raised without fathers

-Song lyrics that glorify violence

-The elevation of self as a god and pleasure as all

You seem to have a lot of background information on these suspects, Iron Horse... or are you just making vague, blanketing statements?

Funny how people on here were screaming for Zimmerman's head and crying RACISM RACISM, but now when the tables are turned (twice in a couple days) everyone here is dead silent.

Oh that's right, I forgot to put my liberal cap on. Only white people are racist.......

I rather enjoy the more measured approach to the discussion in this thread... but to each his own I suppose

I think these first 3 items are certainly an issue and specific enough to address. However, unless more men like Maycocksean volunteer and "guide" these kids from youth until early adulthood - it's not likely to happen.

We can't make horrible lyrics illegal - otherwise "Sexy Boots" would have been banned....then again, maybe that would have been okay. But leaders within the black community (especially moms) can keep the pressure on the artists...
